The Triumphs of Oriana: 40th Anniversary

To mark the our 40th anniversary, Oriana returns to the musical genre which inspired its name — the madrigal.


The original Triumphs was a set of 25 madrigals published in 1601 to celebrate Queen Elizabeth I. We will perform some of the most famous, and also explore other madrigals old and new, lovelorn, sentimental and witty — perfect music for a significant birthday.

The program will include songs from the original collection, plus lovely listening from┬áMonteverdi, Byrd, Saint-Sa├źns, Debussy, Finzi, Britten … and a few surprises.
